Family Photographs

Dallin and I were staring at the wedding photos hanging in our living room and we both commented on how different we look so we decided to update them...

A tripod is just as good as a photographer, right?
(jk I know the importance of an awesome photographer, we are just poor)

25 things I learned as an undergrad

College is fun.
College is hard.
College is tiring.
But mostly, college is fun
I have compiled a list of things I have learned as college student to celebrate my final semester. 

  1. I learned how to think critically
  2. I learned how to ask questions, important ones
  3. I learned how to accept it when my beliefs are being challenged
  4. I learned how to get fired up in a passionately polite way
  5. I learned to chase my dreams, the time is going to pass no matter what. Go for what makes you great.
  6. I learned that not all my questions have answers and that's okay
  7. I learned to have an open mind
  8. I learned how to balance everything
  9. I learned how to be myself. And that doesn't mean always knowing which way to go, but knowing that the paths in front of you can lead you to anyone you want to be.
  10. I learned to be on the hunt. I have a thirst for knowledge I never thought I could have. I want to read everything. I want to know why I do what I do. which leads me to my next thought...
  11. I learned that faith doesn't mean blind obedience
  12. I learned that there is a certain percentage of people who are never going to like you, and I got over it (not completely, still working on it. JUST LIKE ME! OKAY? I'M COOL, I PROMISE)
  13. I learned that the friends you have now are probably the most true friends you will ever have. Anyone who can put up with my neurotic personality and busy school schedule is a true friend of mine.
  14. I learned that relationships are EVERYTHING. If you don't build good relationships with people you might as well be non-existent. (Even Liz Lemon, a real loner, had Jack Donaghy)
  15. I learned that the application process for FAFSA makes me cry... every year. 
  16. I learned to be okay with the fact that I am probably going to be poor because I didn't choose a money-making major. At least, I can love what I do.
  17. I learned how to have and be a support system. 
  18. I learned that college life is a constant battle of what should I eat and when should I shower?
  19. I learned that  if I can sign up for classes every semester with UVU's unorganized and frustrating registration software without killing anyone, then I can do anything.
  20. I learned that I never want to to do math again
  21. I learned how to be a professional procrastinator
  22. I learned how to stretch my dollar (however, I may have already known that because my mother was an excellent teacher and example)
  23. I learned that planning a wedding during midterms is not a good idea. ever.
  24. I learned that Disney is sketchy
  25. I learned that life happens and its so much happier if you just roll with it. 

I have loved my college experience, especially at UVU. 
I loved my professors and adviser. I will truly miss it.

Soon I will be applying to Grad school, if anyone has any advice for me I would LOVE to hear it. Thanks for stopping by my super exciting blog about my awesomely adventurous life. 

p.s. I think this is really cute and if you wanted to get it for me as a graduation present... I wouldn't be mad. not. one. bit.
